(1+1) > 2 – One plus one equals much more than two.

The 2021 Festival has adopted this equation, the magnitude of which has been shown to us– by default­– through lockdowns and forced social distancing, and made of it its heart: by placing itself under the sign of the double, by bringing together proposals for pairs/duos/couples, made by artists regularly working together, or by those momentarily reunited––or by showing pieces that depend upon the contribution of the other-spectator. While performance art is more often than not one of the solitary individual, our aim with this festival is to show how an encounter with the other generates far more than the simple addition of two values, in order to create a new one.

About

The Performance Event in Brussels is Back!

Launched in 2005, TROUBLE has ever since been the international performance event in Brussels. As of 2019, Studio Thor has been organising and producing the Festival, with its studio and environs in the heart of the city’s popular commune of Saint-Josse serving as its nerve centre. TROUBLE is held every two years, in the odd years.

 

 

Trouble: philosophy

TROUBLE has retained the ingredients that ensured its previous successes. With its dense and wide-ranging program, the five-day long event focuses on numerous artistic proposals that are both out-of-the-ordinary and differ from routine formats. Performances involving the human body, yet created by artists whose roots are in the visual arts, contemporary dance, experimental theatre, oral poetry, music or the night scene… for a vibrant mix of artistic families and audiences. Instead of spectacle/s meant for mere consumption, real-life experiences are on offer: self-involvement, risk-taking, vulnerability, interactivity, finely balanced between local personalities and artists from elsewhere–– and often discoveries. To ensure a more diverse vision of art, our program gives pride of place to women, queers, racialized and minority groups. We also offer a platform to young artists, thanks to the collaboration with the performance course at Brussels’s renowned visual arts school La Cambre (ENSAV). While the Festival incorporates a demanding reflective aspect, it by no means excludes an engaging playful dimension!
